"This volume forms a convincing starting point, in which the Viennese cafe is revealed as a key site of fin-de-siecle modernity and of several modern urban identities. One cannot but hope for a sequel - that is, an even more extensive volume but one that is just as carefully prepared with beautiful illustrations and very extensive footnotes." ·

All in all, this work contains fascinating essays that indeed flesh out some of the intricate issues of literary life that lie behind a simple cup of coffee. The cafe was a place of refuge for many artists and writers; in addition, it acted as an active, lively, and, at times, boisterous place for political and social debate... For any course on fin-de-siecle Central Europe, this book will provide a necessary springboard into how and why intellectuals were so heavily invested in the modern times of the new century." · Journal of Austrian Studies

The Viennese cafe was a key site of urban modernity around 1900. In the rapidly growing city it functioned simultaneously as home and workplace, affording opportunities for both leisure and intellectual exchange. This volume explores the nature and function of the coffeehouse in the social, cultural and political world of fin-de-siecle Vienna. Just as the cafe served as a creative meeting place within the city, so this volume initiates conversations between different disciplines focusing on Vienna 1900. Contributions are drawn from the fields of social and cultural history, literary studies, Jewish studies and art, and architectural and design history. A fresh perspective is also provided by a selection of comparative articles exploring coffeehouse culture elsewhere in Eastern Europe.
